      The Bridge: purses and briefcases exclusive with distinctive leather look

      Luxurious leather and charming design are typical for Italian labels. The handbags, briefcases, travel bags and purses by the Italian brand The Bridge are characterized by their distinctive leather look which became a trademark. Especially impressive is the shiny antic finish of the leather accessories- combined with the classic shapes of The Bridge bags it creates an image of timeless beauty. The intensity of the gloss makes the leather of The Bridge bags distinctive and improves the typical colours. Soft natural tones like brown, cognac or caramel are part of the classic collections but elegant black with impressive gloss takes its place among the totes and briefcases by The Bridge. New colours as sand or terracotta extend the variety of products together with useful small leather equipment like key-cases and calendars. Soft and durable at the same time the leather continuously reflects new facets of The Bridge bags. In addition, the handbags, briefcases, travel bags and purses get an even more interesting look and win exclusivity over the years. By using the bags frequently they develop a unique patina. If the material is pull-up leather it is intended that the use leaves marks. If there are scratches they will disappear in the leather again and give them a unique texture.

      Luxury bags: The Bridge presents traditional and handmade bags from Italy

      The Bridge has developed a long-standing and close relationship with the tannery Il Gabbiano and this has allowed them to maintain both the quality and consistency of the material used in the productions of their handbags. Cowhide leather is used to manufacture their leather goods and tanned by using animal fats and vegetable tannins. It does not involve the use of any harmful chemical substances. The skins are coloured with aniline dyes using wool buffers, which are passed repeatedly over each hide by hand. As a result, each hide has unique colourings that make it different from any other. Hand dyeing brings out the natural beauty of the leather, and transforms the surface details into characteristic features. An amber roller is then used to enhance the oils applied during tanning. This treatment gives the leather depth and shine and makes it soft and pliable.

      Business Bags and Luggage by The Bridge combine sensitivity and technology
